Anibal Sanchez, Alex Avila Sent to 15-Day Disabled List

After missing a couple of starts, Tigers right-hander Anibal Sanchez has been put on the 15-day disabled list. Catcher Alex Avila was also put on the DL after being hit by a pitch in the ninth inning of their match-up against the Minnesota Twins. Avila is hitting .172 with 5 homers and 13 RBIs.

Sanchez, who is 6-5 with a 2.76 ERA, has a strained right shoulder. Which, consequently, forced him to miss a start earlier this month.

The Tigers are expected to recall left-hander Jose Alvarez from Toledo before their Thursday match-up against the Boston Red Sox. Also, Avisail Garcia and Bryan Holaday were recalled from Toledo to take their roster spots.

I've been apart of the Pro Sports Extra family since July of 2012. When I first got here, my role was very small. I joined the team as an analyst, but as time passed, my role eventually increased. As of today, I'm the co-host on the website's online radio show, I'm the lead NBA writer, I'm apart of the social media team, and in November of 2012, I was named Manager. I can honestly say that I'm happy in what I do. I have a vision for Pro Sports Extra, and I will do whatever it takes to make sure that vision comes true. We've had our tribulations, but we're recovering from it and it was truly a blessing in disguise. I'm from Flint, Michigan and unlike most Michiganders - I'm a Spurs fan (perfectly normal, right?) I'm currently a junior in high school and I plan on attending Ferris State University or Michigan State University. I'm going to major in journalism and it's a goal of mine to achieve a doctorate in that field. I'm constantly involved in the social media world and you can find me on Twitter @antgrovesPSE .
